Do you need a Right of Entry form?



As we enter the third month of the cleanup process, we are making significant strides statewide, but we need your help. To keep our cleanup crews on target, we need complete and accurate information regarding your property. If you want to opt into the program, we need you to submit a Right of Entry form as soon as possible. If you submitted a Right of Entry form and no longer need assistance, please withdraw from the program so crews can work more efficiently.



Submitting a Right of Entry form


It’s not too late to participate in the state-run wildfire cleanup process. If you have fire-damaged property and want help with cleanup at no cost, you’ll need to sign and submit a property access agreement called a Right of Entry form. The Right of Entry form allows crews onto your property to remove ash and debris, hazard trees, concrete foundations and burned vehicles.



Withdrawing a Right of Entry form


If you completed an Right of Entry form and no longer need the state’s assistance, please withdraw your form. Property cleanup involves a series of steps and the process is well underway before heavy machinery and dump trucks show up at your site. Withdrawing your Right of Entry form, if assistance is no longer needed, helps us execute the cleanup process more efficiently and concentrate on helping your neighbors move towards recovery.


If you’re unsure about the status of your Right of Entry form or if you need more information, call the wildfire debris cleanup hotline at 503-934-1700. You can also check the status of your property using our Property Status Map.
